I am an outlaw. My town has a ridiculous ordinance requiring permits with permission from neighbors to own chickens and they require 1/2 acre per chicken. Stupid. So, of course I ignored it. I have 8 girls in my backyard. A Tax Appraiser from the county showed up at my house this afternoon. Scared the mess out of me. Had I been thinking clearly I would have realized, the county tax appraiser has nothing to do with town ordinance but at the moment, I thought "oh no, my chickens!" One of my "friends" or "neighbors" anonymosly reported to the tax office that I had a finished basement in my house that wasn't listed on my tax assesment. Really, people, get a life! Anyway...why people feel they have to dig into people's lives when they're not bothering anyone is beyond me.
